it should be getting done already if us use the I9 form before you hire someone

Many illegal employers just ignored the I9's I know because I worked for a roofing company that did.

I worked for a premier landscaping company doing all personnel related requirements...to keep it short here, the I-9 was a form required by federal law to have on file accordingly completed in each person's file, as it is today, if not completed and it is checked by authorities, the fine is $10,000 per person per uncompleted and unsigned form.....today, businesses are signing up at a rate of 2,000 per week for the free federal system of E-verify....human resource managers who don't have it, but continue to violate various state employment laws as well, in addition to their flagrant circumvention are facing hefty fines and/or jail time (as per Mr. Chertoff of DHS). Maybe, just maybe, state legislators will enforce current laws as well and follow Arizona with even more.

Kris Kobach, a University of Missouri-Kansas City law school professor who specializes in immigration law, said E-Verify’s error rate is less than 1 percent.

E-Verify error rate is LESS than 1%. That is a pretty good record.

Hispanics are lieing about there concern about the 1% error. They are worried that it is 100% accurate in finding illegals.

Even the 1% errors are accurate in finding problems with the information. I had been denied a drivers license recently, because my SS info didn't match my DMV info. It took me all of 2 hours to correct it. Funny how when you are a legal citizen things work as designed.

Also, I was happy that I found out about the wrong info, it may of caused problems in a couple of years when I try to collect my SS benefits.

So, again more lies and deceit by the traitors/invaders/profiteers.

As an employer, we insist on proper identification. If it is not provided, you don't work for us. We have done this for years. Only illegals and people who don't want to pay their fair share of taxes don't provide the proper identification. Checking carefully has been somewhat of a pain, but well worth it. If everyone followed the law, illegals wouldn't be a problem. It is easy to log on and check it out.

As an employer, I applaud your efforts and agree with you on following the law easily; but, I have some questions: if you suspect fraudulent documents, do you still accept them? If so, do you just copy them and attach them to the person's I9 form? That is the point of how illegals and ID thieves and their employers have bilked the system and why anti-illegal people balk.
